    For the past couple years I've been getting my mulch from a friend in Baton Rouge. I got a call from him today saying he's retiring and closing his business at the end of the year. Now I have questions....

    Where can I find bulk mulch around Lafayette, La?
    What's the pricing like?

    I asked a nursery that I deal with and they told me Lowes!
    Now I know bulk mulch isn't that high around here to where Lowes looks good, right? :confused:

    If there isn't any competition buy the old guys business and sell mulch.

    It's too far from me to deal with on a daily basis.

    I guess there aren't many on here from my area or they just don't want to help the competition. I can understand. lol

    I managed to find a couple places after searching hard.
